[This is the spelling used by the writer of the

ised" the word, as he has evidently considered it 
to mean literally " pitiful thing in regard to 
strength." This, no doubt, is not at all discordant 
with actual use. It is clear, though, that the pro- 
nunciation represents a single word, which, so far, 
has been spelt rfiUAJriAiftu in Ir. T. S. Diet. Even 
this does not quite satisfy the sound which is 
ujiUAUÚAifir, evidently a colloquial metathesis of 
cftuAtnAijtr; (cp. uAinte = uAirne, &c). The 
analogy of the last word, of which the proper 
spelling is uAine, may show that a t has been 
developed in cftuA^nAific also. It may perhaps 
be analysed cjiuAJ-fn (epenthetic) + -Aiftc (ter- 
mination).]
